To cultivate innovative solutions in collaboration with others, transforming healthcare by doing more, with less, for more people.
What do we mean by “doing more, with less, for more people”?
- Do more / Our mission is about creating new value for individuals and communities across the health spectrum from illness to wellness
- With less / Our mission requires being more mindful of limited resources in an era of unsustainable costs, and finding more efficient ways of delivering quality care.
- For more people / Our mission broadens our capability to sustainably aid and care not just for those who have access to resources, but for those most in need—and least served.
The Innovation Response
Within the field of healthcare innovation, there is a great deal to learn from other cutting–edge thinkers and organizations, both in healthcare and within other industries. The importance of fostering innovation in organizations is not new. It is, however, a growth necessity for the most successful organizations.
Historically, innovation has often led to increased costs, especially in healthcare, where many organizations have “looked at need, but been blind to cost” (Paul Yock, MD, Stanford). Increasingly, these growing costs are simply unsustainable, even among the affluent. It is for this reason we must apply innovative thinking to significantly reduce costs while maintaining high quality care. We must continue serving existing communities, but increase the number of people we serve, and serve them all more effectively.
